Jonathan Byrne New International Special Events Society UK Chapter President Philip Atkins shared his vision for the association’s future strategy prior to the ISES AGM, 9 July.

The venue for the AGM and evening garden party "to celebrate British creativity" was The House of St Barnabas, in London’s Soho.

The association demonstrated some of its members’ creative talents with contributions from The Ice Box, Joe & Sephs Gourmet Popcorn, Hummingbird Bakery and Ideas Box.

Jonathan Byrne, COO at Royal Aeronautical Society and now Past President of the ISES UK Chapter, picked out the board’s engagement with the membership as his stand out for the previous 12 months.

“We had a good event schedule and did something every month,” he noted.

“We also worked hard to expand ISES to the regions, in particular Birmingham, where Marketing Birmingham supported two regional events,” he added.

Byrne noted the association’s first ‘Simvent’ hosted by The NEC, had demonstrated the connectivity of ISES, and simultaneously linked delegates in Canada, London and Birmingham via technology.

Byrne also said ISES had launched the first research project into the Olympic supply chain network. A brand evaluation of ISES itself had been launched for the incoming board.

Atkins, who is also MD of Off to Work, said he was keen to bring the best educational and unique experiences to the ISESTalks events.

“We will also use the opportunity that the Games will bring our industry this year to continue to spotlight the wealth of creativity and talent here in the UK, and share our experiences to benefit our peers nationally and internationally,” he said.

He also agreed that the ISES UK Chapter could learn from its colleagues in Central Europe, EMEA and Stateside.
